What comes up for you right now when you read the words, “YOU ARE ENOUGH – you have everything you need within you right now to be a successful coach!”
Are you nodding your head and feeling your chest expand?
Or have you shrunken back in your seat, recoiling from these words because you cannot accept them as true?
If you nodded in agreement with these words, I want to congratulate you for recognising your innate worth and the contribution you make to the world just being you.
If you struggled with these words, I want you to listen carefully. This article is for you. You are the reason I am writing this article,
Now is the time to stop holding back your light…
Over the past ten years I’ve met far too many talented and gifted Coaches, Consultants and Therapists whose fear of not being good enough has held them back with their businesses. And more importantly stopped them making a difference in the lives of those who need their help.
I get emotional as I write this but there isn’t time for YOU to hold back your light anymore, or for you to spend months confused and questioning what your gifts are, what your niche is, who you are here to help, how you will help them, or whether you can ask for what you need and desire.
You decided to start your business because you are passionate about helping others and because you crave feeling fulfilled by the work you do. You are no longer able to force yourself through the drudgery of a monotonous 9 to 5 which sucks your soul out of you.
This is because you have HEART and your HEART is needed in the world!
The world needs you to recognise you are enough…
There has never been a time when your HEART and GIFTS were not more needed.
We only need to look at the devastating impact of climate change for validation of this.
Climate change is forcing us all to be BRAVE, whether we know it or not.
I want to help you read the words, “YOU ARE ENOUGH” and say, “YES I AM”.
It’s not about being perfect…
Look I am not saying I have this perfect…I too struggle far too often with not feeling good enough, but if there is one thing I have learnt, it is that the more I step towards recognising my enough-ness, the more my businesses flourishes, the more people I help, and the happier I become.
(Incidentally it seems to also result in me taking more action around wanting to nurture and protect humans and our beautiful planet, but that’s another topic for another blog!)
And in stepping towards my enough-ness I realise that to be enough I don’t need to be perfect. I don’t need to have this good enough thing sorted. I can be imperfectly perfect and that is good enough.
So, what are we learning here?
Well, there are three core lessons to feeling good enough, so you can make the impact you are here to make in the world:
LESSON 1 – ACCEPT YOURSELF AS YOU ARE
Being able to recognise that “You Are Enough”, is about accepting “what is”, accepting yourself and your gifts wholeheartedly. It is knowing that who you are, right now, is all you need to be wildly successful and impactful in your business, life and the world.
LESSON 2 – RECOGNISE THAT NOT FEELING GOOD ENOUGH IS AN ILLUSION
That when you get lost in being and feeling “Not Enough”, it is an illusion, it is not the truth, and it is your duty as your best friend and love-r to do whatever is necessary to unpack the illusion, so you can let your light through.
LESSON 3 – YOUR IMPERFECTION IS WHAT MAKES YOU PERFECT
Feeling enough, is not about reaching a destination, some sort of ultimate paradise where everyone dances and sings all the time and lives in bliss. It’s about journeying towards enough-ness every day, knowing that sometimes you will fall into the illusion of “not feeling good enough”, but that you’ll unpack that illusion and continue on. That this very challenge you experience with moving forwards to feeling enough, falling down and getting up again, is in fact part of your enough-ness, and the very reason, “YOU ARE ENOUGH”.
